As the world smiles down on us –

It’s final show of teeth,

Final glint of light.

The storm dies out,

Blackness swarms

& the enveloping shallowness

Swallows me whole.



I run towards the echoing sound,

A coo of light in the unsearchable dark –

A patch so untainted,

That only vision can fruit the paths,

Only desire can light the way.



A collaboration of fortitude

And singular resilience,

Clustered like an army,

An army of bitterness;

Of massacring hopes –

And as the sun beats one final time

I learn that it is my time to take over

And shine my light upon the world.
